2008 Razor Exclusive Signature BRETT WALLACE Auto
Current eBay Price—$13.00-16.00
Just today, it was reported that current Cardinals 3B Troy Glaus will undergo shoulder surgery that will effectively sideline him for at least 12 weeks. This opens up a battle for the hot corner in which this hot prospect is surely going to be engaged during spring training. The other options for 3B, Joe Mather and David Freese are not nearly as talented as Wallace but St. Louis may decide to not get the arbitration clock running on the former Sun Devil quite yet.
Offensively, Wallace is ready to step into the middle of this lineup and be a front runner for the NL Rookie of the Year award. He has hammered minor league pitching mercilessly at every stop that he has been challenged with, hitting .337 with 8 HR and 38 RBI at two stops before batting .309 with 6 HR and 24 RBI in limited time in the Arizona Fall League.
Razor’s inaugural baseball card set has not quite garnered the same market value that the more established Bowman Chrome sets have, but I think that once some of these exclusive prospects start to distinguish themselves in professional ball, these cards will curry much more market demand. Wallace could very well be the first one of these guys to get his shot in an MLB lineup. Once he does, he will not disappoint.
